Guy with the world's biggest manhood reveals the impact it has had on his career
If you offered everyone on the planet the opportunity to change one aspect of themselves, I'd be willing to bet that a near 100 per cent of them would take it up. Many people, I imagine, would want to alter their height, others their weight, and some their facial features.
But of course, there must be a lot of folks out there who wish they could alter their genitals; because, though it's a strange concept to think about, there are societal ideals for what the contents of our pants supposedly should or should not look like. And the ideal for penises usually boils down to this: bigger is better.
However, according to 47-year-old Jonah Falcon - who is recognised as having the biggest penis in the world - having a large member isn't as great as it sounds. In fact, he says, it's caused some serious problems for him throughout his life.
As an actor and TV presenter, Falcon claims that (not so) little Jonah has seriously impacted his career.
"It’s handicapped my acting because people won’t hire me," he says. "They Google 'Jonah Falcon' and then say, 'We can’t use him he’s known for his penis size.'"
As a result, Falcon says, he's fallen short of the level of stardom he hoped for.
"It’s definitely harmed my career - I have two casting director friends who have told me so. It sucks - it relegates me into doing smaller parts.
"Maybe in the UK or Germany it might help my career but here in Hollywood, it’s a negative. None of the major networks or studios would hire me. I add a bit extra edge that they don’t want.
"One day I might self-produce a movie - and I’ll definitely do a full frontal scene as that’s what people want."
However, Falcon is also the first to admit that being so well-endowed has brought him opportunities he probably wouldn't have had if it were not for his enormous appendage.
"I've slept with celebrities including Oscar nominees and Oscar winners. But I can’t talk about that," he says. "I can’t even say if it was men or women - it’s a very limited list so I don’t want to narrow it down too far. It wasn’t Meryl Streep - I’ll just leave it at that."
What's more, because of his reputation, he doesn't even need an introduction in order to score - but he's surprisingly modest about it:
"Most of the time they sought me out. One or two of them were at parties. I’m a unique property I guess.
"It’s a real compliment when porn actors and actresses say I’m bigger than all of the partners they've had. They view me as the biggest and you have to remember they’ve seen a lot - so they know."
When erect, Falcon claims his penis is "13 and a half inches [long] with a seven and a half to eight-inch diameter." For context, the average penis is only five to six inches when erect - less than half of that!
"I never really thought I was that big - it’s just normal to me," he explains. "It’s only when I compare myself to other guys I think I'm big. It doesn’t run in the family - I think it’s just a genetic quirk. My family get a bit embarrassed about the whole thing, to be honest."
There other downsides to his condition, though.
"I have to be careful when I’m sleeping that it doesn’t bend the wrong way and I get a penile fracture, it's never happened yet but it almost has," he says. Plus, "certain sex positions - like when someone is on top - don’t work either. The urologist has told me not to do that because it can increase the risk of penile fractures."
Perhaps Falcon is right in saying that his genitals have interfered in his career. However, if he is, he's got to admit that he's achieved a lot more fame than others who have the same goals as him - and he's had the privilege of rubbing shoulders (plus a little more) with other famous celebrities along the way.
